Learn from Winemaker Jon Berlin how this Napa Valley Winery crafts balanced, delicious, award-winning Chardonnay using their Rutherford fruit. “The diurnal fluctuation in temperature from warm days to cool nights allows us to achieve exceptional ripeness and acid balance in our fruit,” says Proprietor Lily Oliver Berlin, who now owns and operates the family winery with her husband Jon Berlin. “The temperature swings can be as much as 40 degrees and are caused by cool air drawn up from San Pablo Bay. Morning fog can last up to 9:00 am. Our soils are devigorating for the vines and add a particular minerality and tannin texture unique to Rutherford.”
